The owner of Geno's Cheesesteaks in Philadelphia, Joey Vento, came under fire this June for putting up a sign stating order in English. Then ironically on Flag Day, June 14, the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations filed a discrimination lawsuit against the worldwide known cheesesteak business.
Now Vento has stepped forward on the Hazleton, Pennsylvania crackdown on illegal aliens by donating $10,000 to the Hazleton legal defense fund.
"I'm behind you 100 percent," Joey Vento, owner of Geno's Steaks, wrote in a handwritten letter to Hazleton Mayor Louis Barletta.
Barletta met with the cheesesteak king last summer because of their shared views on illegal immigration. He said Vento's contribution brings the city's legal defense fund to $45,000, which may still fall short of legal fees.
The ordinance, the original version of which passed in July, would penalize companies and landlords that do business with illegal immigrants. Its implementation has been temporarily stayed by a federal judge.
You can donate to Hazleton too and stand up for the rights of this city (and potentially yours as well) to protect its residents. Hazleton has faced an increase in drugs, gangs, crime and graffiti to the city, that was formerly a quiet town, with an massive influx of illegal aliens over the past 6 years.
